    Question How Do I De-Restrict My MK5 Airbox??

    Hellooo
    Just wondered if anyone knew how to de-restrict the mk5 airboxes on a 1.9 CDTI 150.

    Any other engine mods that will increase BHP?
    Im getting remapped next week so just wanted to know of anything else that will make the derv own all

    thanks

    You have to get a hacksaw onto the 2 internal pipes, you cant remove them as in the MK4

    lol...i know its for a mk4...the process is EXACTLY the same and all the parts are more or less the same....trust me i used the same guide to destrict my air box....

    oh yeah...the 2 internal pipes mentioned by pecky are a pain in the arse to remove...so you'll either have to saw it off or use some strong pliers like I did!

    and remember...dont bother destricting it if you havent got the aftermaket K&N panel filter yet!

    I used a very sharp knife and cut the lugs off on the to internal pipes, came straight off.
